karate club's fundraising morning kicks into gear
and Highbridge Karate Club has raised over £140 for Sport
Relief with a morning of fundraising this week.
club invited people to a taster session at Highbridge's King Alfred
School gym where it invited donations and alsp held a number of
fun charity events.
Club spokesperson Clare Constance told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We
raised a total of £140.50 on the day. This was taken in
donations, a 'guess the square' David Walliams competition, and
a sponsored silence by one of the mums, dressed in a red wig,
who was unable to take part in the karate but still wanted to
help raise money."
founder Nick Smith took the bunch of very apprehensive parents
through a beginners session with basic kicks and punches, together
with some 'crafty' but very useful self defence tips. "It
was great to see so many people put on such a show of support
for the club and the charity," he said.
